Can I Have a Lawyer Represent Me in a DUI License Revocation or Suspension Hearing?

In New Hampshire, drivers who are arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) face an automatic license suspension or revocation. Whether the license is suspended or revoked and for how long depends on the drivers’ past history of DUI convictions. A license can be suspended or revoked even if the driver is later found to be completely innocent.

If your license has been suspended or revoked because of a DUI arrest in New Hampshire, you have a right to a hearing before the Department of Motor Vehicles to explain why you should not incur a license suspension or revocation. You are not required to have an attorney at this hearing, but you are allowed to have one represent you, and it’s a very good idea to get an attorney’s help. Experienced New Hampshire DUI defense attorneys frequently represent clients in license revocation or suspension hearings. They understand how these hearings work and can put together the best possible arguments in favor of getting you your license back – just like they do in court when fighting the DUI charge itself.

A drunk driving conviction carries serious penalties. Even an arrest or charge can affect your driving privileges, employment, and more.
